A Royal River Ride
Moving gracefully along the banks of the great Chobe River, Zambezi Queen is a five-star, 42m-long luxury houseboat offering stunning sophistication in one of the most remote locations on the planet. Best of all, as a guest on the vessel, you can enjoy a truly unique and adventurous river safari holiday while surrounded by comfort
Each of the 14 suites on Zambezi Queen features air conditioning and your own private balcony, where you can enjoy unobstructed views of the Chobe River and African landscape beyond. Wake up to the sight of an elephant drinking from the river, or watch a fish eagle take flight – all from the comfort of your own luxurious bed.
Unlike a land-based lodge, Zambezi Queen navigates roughly 25km of the Chobe River, allowing you to explore different vantage points and enjoy unparallelled game viewing. In fact, the banks of the Chobe National Park boast one of the densest populations of elephant in Africa – estimated at approximately 120 000. The park is also home to a large number of buffalo, leopard and lion, along with a variety of antelope and abundant birdlife.
No trip to the Chobe is complete without trying your hand at a fishing safari (strictly catch and release). Thanks to our unique location, we offer excellent fishing safaris all year around – from the annual floods starting in March to the feeding frenzies in the winter months. Our highly knowledgeable guides, the tackle and bait we supply and well-stocked cooler boxes make fishing in Africa an experience to remember.
A stay on-board Zambezi Queen is a different kind of safari. It’s the kind where you get to decide if you want to be up with the birds, or prefer to laze all morning watching game from the comfort of your bed. Our itinerary is flexible so while we have a range of activities on offer, you can choose just how much you want to pack into your holiday or how relaxed you want to be.
